Admitted white supremacist, Dylann Roof was sentenced to death Tuesday for massacring nine black worshipers who’d invited him to study the Bible with them at a Charleston, S.C., church, ending a federal trial that told the story of the killer’s hate-fueled motives.
The jury, the same that convicted Dylann Roof in the murders last month, announced its verdict after deliberating less than three hours.
22-year-old Roof represented himself during the trial and did very little to persuade the panel to spare his life.
Sadly, It will likely be years before he is put to death; the federal government has put executions on hold out of concerns about lethal injection drugs, and appeals could put off the date even further.
Whether you agree with the death penalty or not, Dylann Roof is one sick, sick individual and most certainly got what he deserved. A senseless, hate filled crime that left so many hurt and broken, Roof deserves every bit of his sentence.
